Vatos Urban Tacos (South Beach)

3626 Wishlisted
One of Korea’s hottest restaurants, Vatos Urban Tacos, has come to Singapore. Influenced by Mexican street tacos in Los Angeles and home-cooked Korean meals, the menu consists of creations like the Kimchi Carnitas Fries, Galbi Tacos, and Spicy Chicken Quesadillas. Vatos Urban Tacos has since garnered praise for providing exciting new tastes using only the freshest ingredients. CNN named Vatos the “Hottest New Restaurant in Seoul,” and The Daily Meal chose Vatos as one of the “10 Best American Restaurants Outside of the States”. Vatos Singapore is located in the beautiful former National Armoury Building in South Beach and can seat up to 80 people indoors and another 30 people outdoors.

First of all, the portion is huge and I was so stuffed from having just half!! Secondly, holy smokes it was really good 🤤 we got a fajita classic with Baja fish ($16++) - loved the Mexican rice filling with black beans and grilled vegetables. It was also stuffed with sour cream and hot sauce! And I loved the baja fish so much, such a good choice!! The smell of white fish was evident the moment the dish was served. The meat was soft and fresh, lightly battered to give some crunch.

Was a little surprised by the use of soft tacos, which had a strong flour taste that overwhelmed the meat! These chimichurri chicken tacos ($17++ for 3) were otherwise wonderful - the cold salad contrasted against warm spicy chicken, which was tender and well flavoured.

Also tasty but preferred the pork belly on to this. Chicken was tender and well marinated.

Tacos are the soft kind though. Not the crunchy ones you’d expect.

Very worth it deal!

Yummy tacos that went well into my belly!! Loved the pork seasoning and went very well with the pickled onion! This is one of their best.

I first tried Vatos Taco in Korea at the original branch. The food is exceptionally better than the one in Singapore. I had the Carnita Kimchi Fries which did not have enough condiments on it. The Chorizo Kimchi Fried Rice had a very strong herbal taste from the Chorizo which did not match very well. But the good items were the Barbacoa Spring Rolls which were flavorful and crispy along with the Tequila Honey Chicken Wings which were sweet and tangy with a crispy jalapeno topping. Overall, the meal was 6 out of 10. A bit overpriced for bar food but it was themed with the Korean/Mexican fusion which made it unique.
